Department Advising for the Health Education major, Minor in Health Education, and Minor in Women’s Health Issues

Lower-Division PH Group Advising Sessions: We encourage you to attend one of our lower Division PH Group advising sessions for PH students who are freshmen or sophomores (lower-division students) during the fall and/or spring semester. A PH Faculty Advisor will host the group advising session. In the session, students will learn about major requirements and about the department. Check our website in August for Fall/Spring dates under Admissions. You should meet one-on-one with a major advisor once you have completed 45 units and are in your sophomore year. In addition, we highly encourage lower division students to meet with GE advisors at the CHSS Student Resource Center (SRC) during their freshman and sophomore years for General Education course advising.

Upper-Division PH Student Advising Appointments: One-on-one PH advising appointments are for PH students that have 60+ units completed or have finished the majority of their lower-division GE requirements and are ready to start developing their HED major educational plan.

Online advising appointments are 20-minutes long and preferably scheduled at least one day in advance (there are no drop-in hours). Due to the great need for advising, please be sure to arrive on time and for your appointment. If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance so that another student may have the time slot.

Advising appointments are not available during the fall recess, winter break, spring recess, or during finals week.
